PUPILS OF THE WEEK
This week I have chosen three Stars of the Week: Hannah, Bow and Zara for the Christian value of Wisdom and Trust. These three girls have been impressing me over and over again with their commitment, hard work and perseverance. Their daily messages are also very kind and polite. Thank you girls, keep on working hard! ;-)
Wow! What fabulous work you are all producing, I am super impressed and well done to you all! It has been difficult to choose my pupils of the week, but I have now picked three for this week's award: Olivia has really stood out for the Christian value of Endurance, since we locked down in January she has really embraced her home learning and is making great progress; Elliott for his ingenious digestive system poster and Sanjana - we haven't met yet but I am very impressed with her attitude to her home learning and I look forward to meeting her just as soon as we return to school. Keep up the great work everyone.
PE Create a sequence of movements to represent food travelling through the oesophagus
Can you remember the movements you created last week when you imagined yourself to be your favourite piece of food beginning its journey through your body, beginning in your mouth? Today you are going to create movements to represent the next part of the journey when your food moves from your mouth into your stomach via your oesophagus! Watch the next video all the way through, and then go back to take particular attention to the Gilbert Grape's movement through the oesophagus. Your movement sequence needs to take you from the mouth (try to make sure you enter the right tube) and will pass through the narrow tunnel of contracting and relaxing muscle to reach the esophageal sphincter where it squeezes through into the stomach (which we will concentrate on next week as we continue the journey). So, put ALL 6 movements together (you can write down or record what you did) and we will look at how we can use movement to represent what happens in the stomach next week. Remember to be sensible when you create your sequence taking into consideration the amount of space you have to move in!
